Here’s a clip from the recent Vierne concert at St. James Cathedral.
Dividing the organ into the grande orgue and orgue de choeur proved to be challenging. While planning for the installation of the instrument, this was one of the pieces that I envisioned performing in order to work out all the little details necessary for the two consoles to function at the same time. How thrilling it was to actually hear the piece come to life. Thanks to David Brunner, Ben Lane, the CFAGO and all the singers for making this vision a reality.

The audio is from the in-camera microphones. Once I get the professional audio, I’ll update this with better sound.
